Heart Won't You Beat A Little Quieter?
slow your dreadful pace.
with your palpitating fury
that falls heavy and lacks grace.
heart won't you beat a little quieter?
this body can't keep up with your riotous blaze
This faces grow pale
as my heart races
My body faints with thine fearsome chase.
but it shan’t slow its pace
some hearts have no peace
valves which weaken
when stricken with change.
